minimum wage

Norwood, NC

#1 Jun 12, 2014
I live in a trailer and can't make it on minimum wage. I own the trailer and have no family with one car and can't do it. I'm going to apply for food stamps tomorrow but this sucks. Every other week I bring home about 400+/-. How do I survive. I applied for many jobs in which every day I look for on Craigslist yet no call backs and no e mails wtf. Are they just trolls or do they actually hire. I'm a machinist with a four year degree and I've operated multimillion dollar equiptment. But no one hires. South carolina needs a wage increase to some thing we can survive on and not have to scrounge for change. I'm so tired all the time and never truly happy. Always crying at home alone and I feel like I'm sinking into deeper and deeper depression day by day. I'm tired of surviving. When can I start a family, when can I start a life outside of this slavery? My generation faces no retirement and a life of servitude. We will work until we die. Obama care ain't going to solve anything. I still wonder why that was even dreamt up. Anyway how or why would anyone try to start a new life here? No one hires and unless your rich or work for the state I.e. good olé boy network your pretty much screwed. I'm tired of seeing most people I work mith malnourished and living in old hotel rooms now converted to public housing. Basically anyone on minimum wage that doesn't have a home is working homeless only with room and board for the night? This is horrible. Forget Africa what about us americans.
